ooo nice, extreme to the max dude.
Its a triple rad wc loop with direct die cooling. Trying to set everything up in a fashion that's easy to do maintenance on similar to what you get with an aio
seems safer compared to Dice, im pretty sure that that the temp diference will be something pretty interesting to research, also if easy to do why not giving it like advise for temp improvement with other, i like the plan !
My new Enermax Big Boy:
Need to get some longer screws and drill 2 more holes in the bracket
Fabulous photos. Can you stand a bit further back and take one of the whole PC with the side off please.....
Here's the Bottom of my Motherboard from my ZOTAC ZBOX AD04 Plus Mini PC. No Pic's can be found on the Net till now. See there's two m-Sata Connectors. 1 is used for Storage and the other used for WiFi
The Storage i have Win10 with a 1TB HDD on the Front Side which can only take Laptop 2.5" Based HDDs
upload photos to internet
Yes, of course....
Enermax Big Boy & XSPC Ram Blocks(Make a romantic relationship)
^^that is just gorgeous!
More Photo, Comming soon....
Can't wait to see them
Crappy H110 died (the usual buzzing pump because impeller shaft broke magically, won't buy anything Corsair ever again), so had to get new cooler. Got a CoolerMaster MasterLiquid PRO 280, since it doesn't have Asetek pump head.
Then, board tossed it's cookies (ASUS X99 DELUXE and then MSI X99 GAMING PRO CARBON), so I tossed it and the CPU in it aside, and loaded the case up with ASUS MAXIMUS IX FORMULA.
Then I had to swap the PSU, because it seems the Thermaltake ToughPower 1275 platinum PSU doesn't like only pushing 300W.
Maybe the PSU burnt the boards?
The RGB madness has ensued. Added two RGB LED strips (thanks, MSI! )
Then, I added in the G.Skill RGB rams, because, why not? Now I don't need any desk lamp, my case is nearly blinding!
Anyway, the ASUS board won't last in the PC long, I want my 6950X back! But I must find one epic X99 board with RGB LEDs everywhere...
Must say, that looks damn good How do you like the Coolermaster 280?
I've seen a few references to broken impeller shafts so pulled mine apart, I expected a direct drive motor to shaft set up but it is an electro-magnetically driven shaft, and it was intact.
My pump (Asetek) also suffered from a bit of noise followed by a sudden rise in temperature, indicating failure.
There was no sign of any obstruction or build up internally at all, in fact it appeared new still.
I'm wondering if it might be more of an electrical issue than mechanical failure .
It's good, maybe a bit better than the H110, even, but the fans can sound like a jet taking off as they ramp up, although they are far quieter than the H110's fans.
It could very well be. But I am also thinking that it is possible that the pump's failure (in my case) might have been part of the board deaths since the fan headers have limited current capability and I had the pump plugged into the board.
Yet the opposite might be true, maybe that Thermaltake PSU not liking being under the low load led to the death of the boards AND the cooler.
Yeah im going to use that cooler, and get noctua fans for my friends workstation. Though with the case we are using we might have to put the cooler as intake.
I took the 240mm rad off my H100 and installed a 120mm one, i power the pump off molex.
The new photon is fantastic. I want to get one.
Added a case with a mSata 32GB for CloudREADY for the HP Mini 2140
Good idea Caps, I think I can dig up an adapter I have laying around and try that pump again connected to molex, and not the Motherboard's header.
Like a glove
Pretty much done there's a few more parts I want to order to Polish it off but I redid the wiring and mounted everything up. Getting around 38-43c while gaming on it
